Containing contributions from leading academic and industrial
researchers, this book provides a much needed update of foam
The first section of the book presents an accessible summary of
the theory and fundamentals of foams. This includes chapters on
morphology, drainage, Ostwald ripening, coalescence, rheology, and
The second section demonstrates how this theory is used in a
wide range of industrial applications, including foam
fractionation, froth flotation and foam mitigation. It includes
chapters on suprafroths, flotation of oil sands, foams in enhancing
petroleum recovery, Gas-liquid Mass Transfer in foam, foams in
glass manufacturing, fire-fighting foam technology and consumer
